(Newser) – One minute you're registering for monogrammed guest towels and a $1,090 vase; the next, you're embroiled in a lawsuit over a $125,000 engagement ring. Such is the sad story of former Manhattan couple Bradley Moss and Amy Bzura, who were engaged to be married Oct. 29. For reasons not specified in the lawsuit, the wedding did not occur, even though Bzura had posted on Instagram just a week before the nuptials were supposed to take place, "I can't wait to be your nagging and annoying Jewish wife. You mean everything to me." On Nov. 3, Moss asked in a letter to Bzura that the ring be returned, the New York Post reports. She "has willfully and maliciously refused," per the lawsuit Moss then filed.

Moss, who runs a pipe supply company, and Bzura, an advertising professional, started dating in June 2012 and cohabitated for more than three years on the East Side. They got engaged on Nov. 7, 2015, which is when the square emerald-cut diamond engagement ring came into play. Moss's lawsuit calls for its return, or for Bzura to pay him its cash value plus interest. The suit also calls for the court to determine additional punitive damages. As Yahoo News reports, New York is a "no-fault" state when it comes to such matters, which likely means Bzura will be required to return the ring even if she's not the one who called off the engagement. (Police say a Florida woman attacked her fiance over a recycled engagement ring.)
